Ambulance services

If patients are transported to or from hospital by ambulance, or between hospitals at their request, they will be responsible for payments of any SA Ambulance Service accounts for transport.

Transport home

Patients can only leave hospital by ambulance if it is medically indicated. Please plan ahead and make private arrangements for your trip home, if you are well enough to travel by car or public transport. The Red Cross may be able to help patients who are registered with the Red Cross transport service.

All babies travelling home by car must travel in a fitted car seat or capsule. Local taxis can provide a cab with a capsule if ordered in advance for those who require it.

Patient Assistance Transport Scheme (PATS)

The Patient Assistance Transport Scheme (PATS) provides some financial reimbursement to eligible country patients and approved escorts for the cost of travel and accommodation. PATS may be available if you need to travel more than 100 kilometres each way to receive specialist medical treatment that is not available at your nearest hospital or health service.

For more information about PATS or to discuss eligibility and how the scheme works, contact your local hospital or health service. Or telephone the Adelaide Central Office: 1300 341 684 or the Patient Assistance Transport Scheme (PATS) website.
